With Deepest Sympathy Paper Players Challenge PP498

July 5, 2020

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The amazing Ann is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous theme challenge for all of us!  Fun and Fancy Folds----how fun is that!  We can't wait to see all your creative entries!

My card is created on a black card base.  I used a Kraft layer to back this fabulous wood grained DSP.  I added a flap of black and Kraft to make the tab on the front.  I am so sorry that I didn't take a picture of the inside so, you could see the fold.  Unfortunately, I needed to get this out to a dear friend.  It is a gate fold card.  

Challenge Rules:
  1. Create a new paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
  2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
  3. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
  4. Please link your card to no more than four challenges, TOTAL, including ours
  5. Please be considerate of our requests; entries that do not follow any of these rules will be deleted without notification.
  6. Have fun, and thank you for playing with us!
